ATLANTA and WASHINGTON (April 14, 2011) – Continuing to expand national rankings, Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP today announced that 51 attorneys and 21 practices from the firm received top honors this year in the 2011 directory published by Chambers and Partners, a highly regarded legal research organization. The annual survey assesses leading lawyers throughout the nation on legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial awareness, diligence and commitment to the client.

“The 2011 Chamber results are a reflection of our effort to excel as a firm and within our individual practices,” said Sutherland Managing Partner Mark D. Wasserman. “Our talented attorneys take great pride in a high level of client service and professional conduct.

The firm received national rankings in: Capital Markets: Derivatives; Construction; Energy: Electricity (Regulatory & Litigation); Energy: Oil & Gas (Regulatory & Litigation); Insurance: Transactional & Regulatory; Investment Funds: Registered Funds; Outsourcing; Tax: Controversy; and Tax: Corporate & Finance.
